OSU Receives Defense Department Grant For Study

Posted: Updated:
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma -

An $875,000 grant has been awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense to Oklahoma State University's Institute of Technology in Okmulgee.

OSU will use the grant to study the supply chain of the Oklahoma defense industry in partnership with the Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission.

Mike Cooper, chairman of the commission, says the grant money will help the commission and OSU gather information as the state prepares for budgetary and mission changes in the Department of Defense. Cooper says the study will look at the industries in Oklahoma that rely on Defense Department spending as part of their business.

OSU will share the information through a publicly accessible, web-based portal that maps the impact of sales and employment related to military spending in Oklahoma and help defense and aerospace supply chain industries.
